Will Batman ever movie cities?

Will Gotham City ever get fixed and he can move on to another shithole? Or is Gotham City perpetually fucked with corruption, high levels of crime, and psychopaths that are constantly breaking out.

Yeah. The closest I can think of would be for there to be a "New/Neo Gotham" maybe off world. But after the stuff Gotham has been rebuilt from in Zero Year, Mr. Bloom, Cataclysm, I can't see it being permanately destroyed. Gotham and Batman are linked, for worse and for better.

Were Disney in its ever ravenous hunger to consume Time Warner, you can bet that Marvel would move him to NYC and hype the holy marketing shit out of it, Batman.

Wasn't there some weird time in the 70's where they tried to move Batman out and instantly changed their minds after the backlash?

:-O That sounds interesting. Damn, comic readers are vicious. They want to trap Batman in a city he can never save.

^ Not sure about that. I think part of the meta-tragedy of the character is investing himself in a battle he can't clearly win. It's part of what makes him endearing. But Gotham grows and escalates along with Batman; very promethean.

I think you mean Sisyphean.
